React is not that easy (For me)

Hello everybody, couple days ago I started to learn React after I feel comfortable with Vanilla Js. I'm following an Udemy course to Learn React. I was expecting React to bit eaiser to understand and implement but now it really confuse me all that sending components and creating lots of things. I just wanted to share this. Do you guys have any suggestion for me?

Sometimes, what you need is a mental model. I found a great write up about it: A Visual Guide to React Mental Model

Kent Dodds' React Introduction Course also helped me grasp how react works behind the scenes.

Well also try Vuejs. While keeping ok eye on react. They are different. Vue is the easiest of the single page application. That’s my plan. React has to much way to work with it. Don’t get me started with that danm Redux. Javascript is doing to much in react. Is very confusing.

Check out this YouTube video by freecodecamp. This got me started well. I started learning React two weeks ago and am already working on a semi-large scale project using ReactJS for the front end. Freecodecamp also offers a ReactJS interactive course on their website.

I'd also suggest you to view the official ReactJS docs when you get stuck or confused about something. And the community is always there to help too😉.

Hi! Definitely keep at it. The modern React/Vue/Angular paradigm is a little funny and takes some time to absorb if you came from plain JS. Some good tutorials have been posted here in the comments!
